Accelerating Global Health Innovations

The Global Healthcare Innovation Alliance Accelerator (GHIAA), established in 2017, is an independent resource, curator, interdisciplinary think tank, and consultancy. We provide research, education, advocacy and support to stakeholders involved with global health agreements and related policies.

Mission

We are dedicated to improving the health of the world’s communities through accelerated formation of alliances which increase access to medical products.

Goals

Our goals are to accelerate alliance formation by:

  • Promoting transparency of global health agreements and providing tools to enable stakeholders to navigate and interpret key provisions.
  • Developing educational resources to facilitate the translation of global health policies into actionable agreement provisions.

  • Engaging in collaborative efforts and open dialogue with academic, governmental, business, and nonprofit organizations to resolve the issues addressed in global health agreements.

Background

The Global Healthcare Innovation Alliance (GHIA) began as a program in Public Policy at Duke University to research the alliances formed to address the Ebola outbreak of 2014. The Ebola outbreak highlighted the need for collaborative investment in R&D for future global health alliances. Conversations with stakeholders revealed a desire for legal and policy tools to facilitate alliance formation. Using samples of agreements and contracts from representative organizations, GHIA worked to identify and analyze development and other agreements in order to expedite multi-stakeholder negotiations.

GHIA was spun out into the non-profit GHIAA in early 2017 and is continuing to develop tools and best practices to accelerate global health alliance formation.
